Harper for who?

0 votes
13 team 5x5 rotisserie league, 5 keepers after this (first) season, but will have more (likely 10) next season. My 5 are Harper, Heyward, Bruce, Pedroia, and Ellsbury (with Austin Jackson there as well). I have no chance of winning this season. Buddy wants Harper and has Kipnis, CarGo, Longoria, Hosmer, Strasburg. Any trades worth entering into? I want Kipnis over Pedroia, but Harper is a big chip to sacrifice.

Personally I would just keep Harper. Pedroia is still < 30 and I like him as much as Kipnis. Strasburg is always interesting, but hard to give up a potential #1 hitter for a potential #1 pitcher.

If I'm going to make a deal to trade away Harper I'd make sure the other owner is paying extra. As an example...Harper, Pedroia and Jackson for CarGo, Hosmer and Kipnis.

In situations like this you have nothing to lose...you don't get a deal done and you have Harper, but if you can find someone who feels like they can't live without him you might be able to get a dream deal from them.
